Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers did not look good early but they have to take some measure of positivity from the way they nearly stole game one late. However, they are now down 1-0 and are still on the road as the favorite so there has to be some pressure.
They scored 5 runs in the opener but for most of the game the offense was super quiet. Manny Machado homered early but that was the only homer they hit and they did not draw walks the way they did against Atlanta. Those were their two biggest weapons against the Braves.
Maybe we are going to get more of a series than we thought.
Hyun-Jin Ryu has made one start in the playoffs and he was very sharp, shutting out Atlanta for seven innings in game one of the last series. You can argue that this start is even more important as they are down in the series.
He has been spectacular for the the last month with just one earned run allowed in his last four starts. His home road splits are not favorable but it is not like he has been terrible on the road. Everything looks a little bad next to a 1.02 home ERA.
The Dodgers used a chunk of their bullpen in the loss but most should be available.
Winning game one is always huge but it is especially so when you are at home and are still the underdog.
Milwaukee nearly caughed it up late but they were able to get a solid lead early and then deploy ace reliever Josh Heder to effect in the victory no matter how tenuous it looked in the final couple of frames.
He is most likely down for this one as he is most effective when he has a bit of rest and having the series lead makes rushing him unlikely.
I am not sure we saw enough in game one to predict where the series is going to go yet, though the Brewers look smor even with the Dodgers than most might have thought.
Never would I have thought that Wade Miley would be starting in a playoff game, but here we are. Despite my criticism, he put up good numbers for Milwaukee and was stingy in terms of homers allowed – just three in 80 innings. He didn’t work deep in his last start against the Rockies but did not yield a run. His home numbers are strong.
It will be interesting to see how the Brewers manage this one in terms of the bullpen. If they are winning you have to think that everyone is in play but if not they may manage sa much for game three as this one. That could mean a comeback, if necessary, won’t be strongly supported.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
Seven games is both a long time and a short time. Los Angeles has to be feeling a little heat for game two, especially after Kershaw did not give them what they needed in game one. They need Ryu to be sharp and work deep in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles ML
I think we will see Ryu be strong for L.A. in this one and I still have trouble with the idea of backing Miley in a big spot. His stuff is just not the type that makes you nervous. The Dodgers even this one up.
